    Windows 10 Pro

    For the first time ever I upgraded instead of a clean install. And so far I've not found a reason why I should do a clean install. Ok, I've got that little problem with the search app but apart from this everything is working well.

    If system is reasonably clean and in good shape there's no reason upgrade should not work. Possible exceptions are drivers if jumping over one windows edition like from 7 to 10 and some incompatible programs.
    In the past I reinstalled XP and earlier once a year just to make clean beginning.

    I usually format/clean install every 6 months so this time I did a format/clean install before the 29th
    so the upgrade was on a virgin install, I have since loaded all my programs and everything is faster and great.

    Just working through the glitches.

    Cheers

    I think as long as you upgrade then clean install you'll have a much smoother ride.
